Making clothing is a conscious choice; it is an investment of time over convenience. The creation of a functional garment, engenders self-sufficiency and happiness. Since it is perilous to compare what one makes to the immutable perfection of store-bought, in sewing for oneself it is the work itself, and the recognition of flaws and gradual achievement of better skills as part of that work, that produces satisfaction. (...) Clothing is an elemental part of day-to-day life, offering both protection and adornment. It is also bound up with ideas of culture and the body. Alternately encouraged by and excoriated by the media, women in the US forge a deep discontent with their bodies that leads many on a constant search for clothes that alter appearance. In response to an ever-varying trend to either conceal or reveal, women go through a series of manipulations of their bodies through clothing under the rubric of “fashion.” Sewing is a way to return to a more primary mode of expression, which a person can choose to follow or create their own style. Within just a single dress pattern, there are endless permutations through the variables of fabric, be it fiber content, color, or print. The resulting garment is unique and acts to place a stamp of individuality in a uniform world: it is a display of a person's skill as well as their taste. Handmade has an authenticity, where each choice is deliberate, from how cloth is cut to the color of thread. In this way a bespoke garment becomes a truly reflective canvas.
